Through linguistic forensics, i.e. studying the way some people talk (or type, in this case), sometimes you can tell that two or more different people (or trolls) are actually the same person.

I was mourning Ann Reinking this week, and she was in Bob Fosse's great film, "All That Jazz," and in re: Bogdanovich, Fosse did "Star 80" about Dorothy Stratton (whatever you might think of that.) So yeah. .. the great Ann Reinking.

I see the sun in my eyes....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:11pm chresti:

Jupiter and Saturn? We're supposed to see them real good on the 20-21st.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:12pm Ike:

Ha ha @RevRab. Srsly tho, I definitely wonder what will happen if humanity starts tossing its garbage into the sun in 200 or 300 years. Even if we even make it that far, I guess we'll be doing pretty well, but could that ever cause more sunspots, or is the sun so huge that we can never incinerate enough garbage in its conona to make the slightest difference? Will the sun get pissed off?

Did I mention that leftovers go down especially well with Fabio's program during pandemic season?
Avatar 5:16pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Either way the Sun expands into a Red Giant & vaporizes the entire Earth in a few billion years. It be not only huge but a mass of nuclear reaction plasma of millions of degrees & magnetic craziness. A single flair is far larger than our pale blue dot.

Earthwalker, I have trouble seeing shooting stars because there's too much light here. There's been a shower of them recently.

Ooh I'm not familiar with this Fall album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:30pm McGroovey:

The main riff of this Fall song sounds like the main riff from (The) Pink Floyd's "Lucy Leave" slightly twisted.

I once talked to Tony Herrington, editor of Wire magazine, about MES. He said that whenever he interviewed him, which was often, some item of his electrical equipment would always, always pack up: recorder, watch, whatever. It didn’t surprise me.

Hats off to you RRNov63, you seem to know Astronomy! Do you have a telescope/observatory?

?: I wish. My binoculars aren't even aligned... wonder if that can be fixed. Seeing Jupiter & Saturn together here calls for it! You can see moons of Jupiter with even binoculars...

RR, you mean you can't see something through both eyepieces at the same time? Usually you can adjust the difference between the eyes, on the binoculars that is!

(chresti, I too was drooling over a balcony in Nice. When we had a balcony here in the South, we were out on it all the time. I could have gone out today, not to gloat to those in the NE.)

Miss G. I dig the NSnowB combo. Fabio helped them expose their smash hits.

dale, you are right the crescent moon is lovely, too bad the storm came through yesterday and blotted out an even closer encounter with Jupiter and Saturn.
